The Honeymoon Photoshoot

Hola, ¿cómo estás?

...and that concludes the extent of my Spanish... aside from dos cervezas, por favor! Y vino! Excelente! Muchas gracias! You know, it's all about priorities over here.

The days spent honeymooning were those of which dreams are made of. When we were living it, I pinched myself just to make sure that I wasn't dreaming, and now that we're back, I daydream (often) about being there again. Mornings meant waking up to palm trees, blue skies, and the songs of birds as we spent extra moments snuggled in the sheets. Calm washed over us each day as we took note of our lack-of schedule, and nothing but the beach to conquer.
When I look back on our time together, I can’t help the smile that stretches across my face. All the moments we spent in stillness as we lazed by the pool, books in hand, not a word needing to be spoken. Long walks on the beach, and parasailing high above the ocean (that is – until we were completely dunked into it – both exhilarating and totally terrifying for me!)
Our one week anniversary celebrated with a private candlelit dinner on the beach, complete with a four-course meal, constant stream of vino, and never-ending conversation that connected us together even more as time went on.
We ate when we were hungry, napped at least twice a day, burned through books, and talked for hours on end. We felt like total ballers lounging on our terrace, Bob Marley playing in the background, as we soaked up the sun, and drank from our mini-bar. We ventured out on photography missions, and even battled the ocean in a kayak. (I’m still wondering who won the battle – my pride says we did, but the ocean who so-conveniently decided to form white caps out of nowhere, flip us over and then continue  to smash waves our way over and over and over is probably still laughing!)
But this particular day? I woke up before the sun, ran down to the beach to see it rise and spent the day hamming it up for the camera while frolicking across the sand.
...And can I just say – hot damn! I love this man.

Let the daydreaming begin ;)

P.S. If you missed any of the deets on our wedding, they can be found here.
